morning right here. jamie: republicans are now seizing on a comment by joe biden on middle class americans. the vice president was trying to fire up a crowd in the swing state of north carolina and many critics say he ended up committing his latest gaffe. you watch and decide. this is deadly earnest, man. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify? jamie: stu varney the host of varney and company joining us. i listened to it and read tonight print, is in any other interpretation. report no, vice president biden got it absolutely right. that's an objective statement of fact. income down $4,000 in those four years. 54,000 down to $50,000. personal wealth, a lot of it destroyed in the housing crash. down 30% on home prices. then there is the american dream which is fundamental to middle america. that's not been destroyed. but many middle class americans no longer share that dream. so over 50% think the future will be worse for their children than it is now. so in the early part of the

at tomorrow night's debate, wolf. >> we'll have a lot more on what joe biden has just said and the very tough reaction coming in from the romney campaign. gloria borger is standing by on that front. both of these campaigns are bringing major surrogates to denver to appear in the so-called spin room after the debate tomorrow night. what are you learning about the romney campaign's people who are coming in? >> reporter: wolf, it's probably no surprise rob portman, mitt romney's chief sparring partner playing barack obama in the debate, he'll be in the spin room. but we've also learned that marco rubio, the rising star, senator from florida who had a prominent role at the republican convention, he will also be in the room. it's interesting to note this comes just as mitt romney's making some new gestures in some outreach, you could say, to the latino community. notable he will be there as well. >> very interesting. thanks very, very much, jim acosta in littleton, colorado. >>> all right. this just coming in to cnn. the results of our brand new poll among latinos all over the united states. certa
